A banana-shaped spin-crossover (SCO) cobalt(II) complex [Co(C16-terpy)2](BPh4)2 (1) with long alkyl chains, based on a terpyridine frame, was synthesized. Compound 1 exhibited very gradual SCO behavior and changes in the dielectric constant. This shows a way in which SCO materials can be used in electronic devices.
